If you’ve had a heavy week or just need a break from first world pains, we’d suggest booking a ticket to Paris for a much-needed (and truly indulgent) pamper session. And the croissants of course.
The Ritz-Carlton Paris is now home to the world’s first Chanel spa, and it’s basically like walking into a high-end Chanel store which has been transformed into a breathtakingly glamourous spa at the two-storey Ritz Club. Think exquisite facials, scrubs, wraps and makeovers using high-end Chanel skincare and make-up products. They also offer a signature Chanel massage, which is essentially a therapeutic guilty pleasure designed to awaken all your senses. Just take our money.
The Chanel au Ritz’s jaw-dropping aesthetic and refined elegance is inspired by Coco Chanel’s former apartment at the Ritz, which was tastefully designed down to the last detail by the fashion goddess herself.
Buzz is that you can get custom treatments designed just for you at this spa, where the in-house “treatment designers” get to know more about you and your needs, and accordingly give you a tailor-made, holistic experience. Every treatment embodies the core values of the art of skin care according to Chanel, so you’ll pretty much be walking out of this place glowing like new diamonds.
If you’ve always been a sucker for Chanel like us, then this immaculate Parisian oasis better be on your things to do on your next trip to France. After all, if there’s any way to pamper yourself, it should be like Coco Chanel would have, right? Bon voyage folks.
